Pomponazzi’s career was marked by polemics particularly in the later years of his life, when controversies arose over his view that according to Aristotelian principles the human soul is probably mortal and over his investigation into potential natural causes for seemingly miraculous events. Since those years, interpretations of Pompon- azzi have diverged, seeing him alternatively as a starting point of atheism, the source of the beginnings of modern science, or a slavish Aristotelian. is volume’s strength lies in its unveiling of a more nuanced picture of Pomponazzi, presenting him not just as a controversial ﬁgure but as both an interlocutor with the medieval philosophical tradition and a dissenter from that tradition. e volume is divided into three sections. e ﬁrst examines Pomponazzi’s relation to several medieval and Renaissance philosophers. ese essays break with earlier
